At Shorebreak Hotel, portraits of surfers hang on the walls, dogs stroll along the hardwood floor, and an abstract mural of wetsuits dominates an entire wall. It's no surprise that the ocean inspires much of the decor at Shorebreak, called a "surfer's haven" by Fodor's. Just steps from the hotel, Huntington Beach beckons surfers to tackle the Pacific Ocean's most gnarly waves.

Huntington Beach, California: Surf Town along the Orange Coast
The host of the annual US Open of Surfing, Huntington Beach proudly bears the nickname of Surf City, USA. Just past the shoreline, surfers paddle out into the Pacific Ocean. Back on the sand, volleyballs soar over nets. As the sun sets, bonfires crackle within concrete rings.
The International Surfing Museum explores the sport's history and legacy. Along the nearby 1-mile stretch of coast known as Dog Beach, pooches can frolic in the surf sans leash and dig for buried treasures of solid-gold tennis balls.

The pet friendly aspect of the hotel and its proximity to the Huntington Dog Beach is what drew me there. The hotel itself is quite nice with all sorts of places to eat and shop right outside the doors. It doesn't have tons of extra amenities but the ocean is right across the street. It really is a Surf City! And the Groupon special was exceptional.
